Synthetic Reaction Updates

Formerly Methods in Organic Synthesis (MOS), Synthetic Reaction Updates is an alerting service covering the most important current developments in organic synthesis. It is designed with the synthetic organic chemist in mind, providing informative reaction schemes and covering new reactions and new methods.

The service covers such topics as:

  • New reactions and reagents
  • Functional group changes
  • The introduction of chiral centres
  • Enzyme and biological transformations    

Items are selected for inclusion only where there is detail of novel or interesting features in organic synthetic methods, so that there are no routine preparations to plough through.

Each item includes reaction schemes, title and bibliographic details, and the items are categorised by five indexes: Author, Product, Reaction, Reactant and Reagent.
